So they have lived for thousands of years and did it wrong by not having good insulation? Really? How much experience does the this beekeeper have?Normal hives have horrible insulation. This makes it hard for bees to survive. We will be using advanced insulation technology to ensure your bees have the best lives possible. Just one less thing for you to worry about!
Lets make everyone think it is easy to keep bee's. they will keep buying packages from me year after year.The computer is getting smaller and smarter every year, and technology is making all of our lives easier. But, beekeeping is still just as complicated. This kickstarter will make it simple and uncomplicated!
:thumbsup:When I insulated the outside of my hives the past winter with foam insulation they stayed too active and 3 of 4 starved. Yes, I fed syrup in the fall and put mountain camp on top in January. My hives did better without insulation. And no, I did not have a mite problem. I have also tried temperature sensors in the hives. They proceeded to propolize them. I think you're looking for a problem that doesn't exist.
I've been in the business for over 4 decades and I hate to tell you beekeeping is NOT the same. I want to improve my honey yields. How is your new hives going to do that for me?????:scratch:Indeed. They're not mutually exclusive. Also, it's not a hyperbole. It is literally that much better.
I notice a lot of you just making sarcastic remarks, but I'm actually working to address the many concerns that are going on in beekeeping. Also, Beekeeping has more or less stayed the same for decades now. Is it really hard to imagine that someone has improved upon what's out there?
You can read - in detail- on what I've made, and how its better than what's out there.

Boy do I agree with you. These people are trying to take advantage of the worry about keeping bee's alive. I think they are just as bad as the scam artists that target my 80 year old dad. Profiting on the ignorance of do gooders. There are no better ways to keep bee's.On a personal note, I'd like to see Kickstarter-related posts actively discouraged, or even banned. If you have views about this, then you might want to add them to this thread:
As of this date, to the best of my knowledge, the hive is still in the developmental stage. There isn't really even a kickstarter for it yet. Sort of a pre-kickstarter where if you are interested, you sign up to get updates on progress and when the real kickstarter program will begin. So far there have not been any actual requests for, uh, "donations".What kind of hive is this guy actually selling? What does it look like?, how does it work?. Why do I need to provide an e-mail address to get any info on it?
Yes:thumbsup:; otherwise they can just keep bumping the post to throw it before our eyes again. There may be the occasional unique idea that comes to light from such a process but it is so roundly abused that I dont think the idea has a net benefit to beekeeping. That is what this forum is about!The administrators of Beesource will be transferring these Kickstarter/GoFundMe-type threads to a special forum according to comments made in another thread — a wonderful decision to help isolate those seeking to separate beekeepers from their monies. Next suggestion to the administrators: do not allow any posts in that special forum to appear when a beekeeper uses the “New Posts” tool.
I'm presuming it looks ... rusty. Unless it's stainless steel.What kind of hive is this guy actually selling? What does it look like?, how does it work?. Why do I need to provide an e-mail address to get any info on it?
